As the name suggests, this will allow WhatsApp’s two billion users to add more than one device to their accounts meaning they can chat from a PC, smartphone and tablet without any fuss. Currently, the only way to do this is via WhatsApp Web but this service requires the primary smartphone that’s used for the account to be powered up and connected to the web.
The new update would end all that with up to four devices all having unique access to chats simultaneously. Along with this Linked Devices upgrade, there’s also rumours that a dedicated iPad app will finally be made available allowing tablet users to seamlessly chat with friends and family from a bigger screen.
Another useful coming to the chat app could help phone owners free up some much-needed space on their device.
As spotted by the team at WABetainfo it appears that WhatsApp is now working on a feature that will make it much easier for users to spot exactly how much space the app’s content is using up on devices.
